Everything we do – every decision we make, every client we choose to work with, every case we file – is driven by our desire to level the playing field for working-class Texans.  Each of our attorneys comes from humble beginnings and knows the value of hard work.  Our fathers and grandfathers were mechanics, laborers, firefighters, and enlisted military – and we haven’t forgotten where we come from.   We’ve intentionally chosen not to represent corporations or the 1 percenters.  Instead, we advocate for people like us – hard-working, family-oriented West Texans who simply want to give their kids a better life than they had.   Sometimes that means standing up to the State of Texas when they are trying to strong-arm a plea offer.  Other times, it means fighting for just compensation against a multi-million dollar insurance company.   Regardless of the adversary, know our mission remains the same – to level the playing field for people like me and you.

A Personal Story of Service & Commitment

Russell grew up poor and saw his biological father struggle with addiction and a criminal record. His mother worked two jobs and the graveyard shift to make ends meet. He witnessed firsthand the devastating impact drugs and the criminal justice system have on family life. As a young man, he knew he wanted a different life. Through hard work and determination, he became the first person in his family to ever attend and graduate college. Russell is married to Jessica Lorfing, his beautiful wife, and he is the proud father of three amazing boys. He enjoys camping, hiking, and longhorn football. One of his greatest passions in life is exploring exotic places and adventure travel. He has traveled to over 70 countries, visited all seven wonders of the world, ran a marathon on the Great Wall of China, hiked to the base camp of Mt. Everest, survived the Amazon jungle, swam with sharks in the Pacific Ocean, explored the mountains of Patagonia, and tried walking on water at the Sea of Galilee.
